Concept art comes in all shapes and sizes, but what makes it special is the relatively short amount of time artists have to complete a piece. This can lead to a rougher look that shows brush strokes, movement, and texture while showing a complete scene.
I’m in love with the look and practicing to learn the techniques. I’ve got a loooong way to go, but am looking up to fantastic works like these below. Each artist is a master of their craft and so inspiring.
(These may or may not have been used as concept art, but I feel that they have the ‘look.’)
There are some great videos of artists who record their painting sessions. Below is one of my favorites by the same artist (Nuriko-kun) that painted “Coming Home” above. Ah, I could get lost watching these for hours.
